Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 66: Escaping the Labyrinth

Episode 66 opens with Urahara and Tessai calmly having tea, when Ichigo barges in and asks for his body to be left in their care. Both Orihime and Chad have now been kidnapped, and Ichigo is understandably taking no chances, as he (now in shinigami form), Renji and Uryu try to find their friends, figureContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 66: Escaping the Labyrinth”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 62: Aizen Escapes!

The confrontation on Sokyoku Hill continues. At this point, all Shinigami Captains have been brought up to speed as to the situation regarding Aizen, and are converging at the top of the hill in order to apprehend him. The first to arrive is a visibly upset Komamura. Komamura is disappointed in Tosen especially, as aContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 62: Aizen Escapes!”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 61: Aizen’s Plan

‘Leave Rukia Kuchiki here and back away.’ Aizen isn’t a guy who likes repeating himself, but he’s forced to say this quite a couple times within the space of this episode. Renji Abarai was always a stubborn one, perhaps even as stubborn as our main character, Ichigo, so there’s no way in hell he’s goingContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 61: Aizen’s Plan”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 56 – A Reunion of Rivals

Battles galore!!! This would be the best way to describe the state of the Seireitei, and of Bleach in general at this point in the arc, and, well, why would anyone complain about that? This episode centres on two of those battles in particular, both of which feature younger apprentices going up against more experiencedContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 56 – A Reunion of Rivals”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 38 – A One-Sided Battle

‘Are you prepared to die? Or have you just given up?’ Kenpachi Zaraki Welcome to the Episode 38 Recap! There is more than one battle to wrap up here, and none of them is unfolding to the advantage of our protagonists. For starters…  Ichigo’s new tactic: Run like hell It’s not very often we seeContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 38 – A One-Sided Battle”

Bleach Recap 2020, Ep. 31 – A Matter of Resolve

Fittingly, for the end of the first month of Bleach Recap 2020, we get a battle-heavy episode with a lot of emotional and character-driven subtext behind it, which is the kind of thing that Bleach, at its best, excels at. What are Ichigo’s limits (if any)? The clash of wills (and weapons) continues between IchigoContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Ep. 31 – A Matter of Resolve”

Bleach Recap 2020, Ep. 29 – An Unlikely Ally, and the Promise of Battle to come

Jirobo is a really sore loser… We start off with a somewhat lengthy recap of Uryu’s fight with Jirobo (which I’m not even mad at), with the winner already more or less decided. The obvious victor, Uryu, already has Jidanbo cowering, and held in check with an arrow pointed right at him. In a particularlyContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Ep. 29 – An Unlikely Ally, and the Promise of Battle to come”

Bleach Recap 2020, Ep. 26 – Fight or Flight

NEW OPENING!!! So we have a new OP this episode, and it’s pretty good, another one of my faves! So far, no complaints about the soundtrack of this series, plus the action-packed vibe reflects the excitement to come, previewing the many future battles and conflicts of the Soul Society arc, and showcasing the expanding castContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Ep. 26 – Fight or Flight”

Bleach Recap 2020 – Day 25, Episode 25: LIFTOFF!

Okay, so in Episode 25, Ichigo and his pals get shot from a giant cannon, and land in the Seireitei… …THE END. See you tomorrow for the Episode 26 Recap! …… okay, JUST KIDDING. Seeing that I still have a long (and challenging) way to go before finishing this series, I’d like to take theContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020 – Day 25, Episode 25: LIFTOFF!”

Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 24 – Meet the Gotei 13

Needless to say, no one in Ichigo’s team is happy about the plan to be shot out of a giant cannon. Sounds just a tad bit dangerous. Kukaku, the self-professed best pyrotechnic around, tries to assure them that she knows what she’s doing, and things will turn out okay, but that still doesn’t seem toContinue reading “Bleach Recap 2020, Episode 24 – Meet the Gotei 13”
